Pandora ended the third quarter with 1,576 multibranded stores in its Americas network, a decrease of 103 from the beginning of the period.

The cuts are part of a trend for the the Danish jewelry manufacturer and retailer. In October, as part of the strategy to focus on the branded sales channel, Pandora decided to close about 700 multibranded stores in North America — around 80 percent in the U.S. and 20 percent in Canada.

During the third quarter, which ended Sept. 30, the company also added 121 shop-in-shops in the Americas, bringing the number to 919. It said 110 of the shop-in-shop additions were related to a collaboration with Jared in the U.S.

Shop-in-shop revenue in Americas increased 36 percent compared to third-quarter 2015, primarily due to the Jared upgrades.

Pandora also added 19 concept stores in the Americas in the quarter, bringing the total to 559.

The firm reported third-quarter net profit of nearly $209 million.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
